Awesome place. It is a small village that is self sufficient, showcasing picturesque houses with foliage and hills providing the backdrop. "Take a leisurely stroll and enjoy the treasures of the town" is one good advice by the travel tour. Don't rush, go at a...More

This is one of the 3 main gasho-style villages in the area. It's 9 houses (vs more than a 100 in Shirakawa-go), so it's much less busy with crowds and feels very traditional. Well worth the extra miles to get there! Breathtaking views of the...More

There are two little villages that are separated by a bridge. There are 3 museums that can be visited on the villages. While interesting to see, there is no information on any western language.
